NFL Elimination League 2013- Sign up and Discussion Thread

Last Man Standing 2013

This thread is specifically for signup to, and discussion about GWJ Eliminator Challenge League.

We had fun doing the Elimination Challenge this last year. I think it will cut down on some effort by using the ESPN system. So I created a group for GWJ in ESPN Eliminator Challenge.

Rules:
Pick one team each week to win. You can only a single team once per season. If your pick loses, you're out.

I'll offer a Steam gift card to the winner of this year.
Good luck to everyone and let the upsets begin!

I'm in.

Most popular pick this week: Colts

I imagine that is everyone's strategy... whoever is playing Oakland.

I'm all signed up. I look forward to picking a team that gets destroyed in week 2.

Heh. I'm hoping Oakland pulls out a miracle and knocks everyone out. I'm using a similar strategy: pick whoever's playing the Jets. Even with Freeman at his worst, the Buccaneers should be able to knock that horrible team off.

Thanks for setting this up SAM.

Last year I tried picking the tougher matches to start with. This year I'm going to pick the no-brainers every week in hopes to last a few weeks longer than last year.

That's my theory too. I'm not going deep enough to analyze the whole schedule. So much can change week to week too.

Yeah I filled out the whole season with gut feelings right now.

But I'm sure I'll change some stuff 3-4 weeks in, assuming I'm still alive.

Got to see if some teams are as good/bad as expected.

I'm in. Although I will must likely be out very shortly.

I'll try again this year. It was fun last year, especially when all but two people lost in the same week.

Didn't we do it in the opposite way round last year and pick the teams we thought would lose?

I am in

In like Flint.

In. Looking forward to cursing at the TV with everyone starting next week!

Looking at the choice averages for all the leagues some people are choosing the easy wins which may bite them later on. Sometimes you gotta take a chance so you have those elite teams down the road when it counts!

So, that being said I picked the Bucs over the Jets.

Yeah it's tempting to pick a mediocre home team to start. Like Jacksonville over KC. Or St Louis over Arizona. Because when can you pick those teams again?

I might go with Tampa Bay if they were at home. But it's hard to figure if Sanchez starting or being out with injury is a good or bad thing for the Jets.

I'm in!

In.

IND > OAK

Signed up. For all those trying to get cute, the first week is usually the hardest to predict for these eliminator pools.

In. Maybe I'll make it a few more weeks this time. I've won office pools numerous times, I swear!

Also, NE > Buffalo's rookie UNDRAFTED QB.

Yeah I started thinking about saving "elite" teams for later, but it's week 1 and anything can happen.

Get your picks in today before the games start.

Football!

Edit: No I didn't

This is the upset I'm actually hoping for to eliminate people first week.

I don't think the Pats are bad but I don't know what to expect.

Taking Tampa. Not that I think that they are amazing but they are better than the Jets and thats probably the worst team they play their entire schedule.

I can always save Indy vs the Jags

Can't you still join until Sun? I mean you'd just not be able to pick denver/baltimore for week 1.

I'm not too sure. You can probably still pick til Sunday if you are in the league. I think the league locks joining/leaving after the games have started. Although I'm not too sure. I would just pick before games start to be on the safe side.

Yea not sure either.

My work Survivor/Eliminator/Suicide whatever you want to call it pool would allow you to pick any game before it started.

So if you forgot your pick on Sunday you had a last chance option of picking Monday night.

I'm in

Sounds fun, count me in.

In under the wire

Raiders and the Bills doing their best to eliminate most of the field.

Yeah, I picked the Bills back when Manuel wasn't starting. Didn't change my pick so as to not confuse things. Oh well.
